  1. That would be a kool idea to add to throughout life, perhaps with highlights thats happened along the way.

  2. I think that’s a fantastic way to chronicle your life, what a mindblowing idea. I do my best with photos, but this is really novel :)

  3. wow, amazing idea. I don’t think the quality is too bad, sure it could be better but it could be ALOT worse.

  4. Is this done to scale of a real film strip? I really like the idea of adding to it through out his life.

  5. I had the idea to do the exact same thing. How disappointing some else has done it first.

    oh well. I shall make my art even cooler and feel more triumphant this way.

  6. I am about to get my second tattoo in Los Angeles!! Yay! It’s all I can think about. I want to get something that says/implies “Live and Let Live” but I’m not crazy about having it fully written out. Can anyone think of a symbol/flower or something in another language (latin) that wil represent what I’m trying to say?? Or– is there a website you can think of that has a lot of this kind of info? thanks so much. Tess

  7. The strip is done to actual scale of 35mm film. If you look closely you can even see the sound lines. Thumbs Out Canada is a documentary about a hitchhiking race across Canada which is currently being edited. As I make more films I will add to the strip and eventually have a roll of film that wraps around my leg.
